Will the Intel i5 3470 work on my Motherboard?

Will the Intel i5 3470 work on this motherboard:

It isn't compatible with Ivy Bridge out of the box, but If the BIOS is flashed with a new firmware it will enable compatibility. I'm also a bit confused about the Motherboard TDP and the CPU TDP, can a 65 TDP Motherboard handle a 77 TDP CPU? (500 W PSU)

    Nope it wont .. TDP 65 means max 65w .. I will NEVER RECOMMEND you to use a 77w CPU on this mobo.. You may damage both ur CPU and your Mobo !!

    Oh, okay then, should I get a 3470S instead? I just found out it's 65 TDP.
    EDIT: Are there any i5 cores that have a 65 TDP?
